10 reasons you are going to love the 2011 Tour de Greenbelt

2011-06-27_tourdegbfrog.gif

  1. You will be rolling through Rouge Park, our first ever "urban national park" with ten thousand acres of beauty nestled between Scarborough and Pickering.

     

  2. It's in your backyard. Much of the ride is in Toronto and will start at the Rouge Valley Conservation Centre across from the Toronto Zoo.

     

  3. Whatever your cycling ability, we’ve got a route distance for everyone, from 12k – 100k.

     

  4. Your well earned appetite will be satisfied with a fresh Greenbelt-grown lunch.

     

  5. Have you ever been to Whittamore’s Farm? Now's your chance! This family farm is a featured stop on the ride and features an on-farm market, Pick-Your-Own and lots of farm animals to see.

     

  6. Drumlins, flutes, outcrops, hoodoos and gullies. Can you believe you're in the city?

     

  7. Woodland, wetlands and wildlife. Rouge Park has gone great lengths to ensure your ride will be an enjoyable one by funding projects like 10,000 Trees for the Rouge.

  8. Human imprint is prevelant too. Palaeolithic nomadic hunters, Iroquoian women farmers, early European explorers, and the multicultural suburban population that you see around the Park today are all part of this history. 

     

  9. Cycling the Greenbelt is good for you and a great way to spend time with your friends and family. Kids 12 and under are free!

     

  10. We guarantee that you will come away feeling proud to live so close to such vibrant countryside. Need proof? Check out the 2010 photos here!
